A Waunakee teacher is among 12 throughout the state to receive a grant from the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation through the Ag in the Classroom program, the farm bureau has announced.

The bureau has awarded 12 Teacher Mini-Grants to to use in agricultural literacy lessons and activities. The grants provide opportunities for teachers to obtain funding that may not be available through their local school budgets.

Yvonne Ziegler, 4-year-old kindergarten teacher at St. John School, received $100 to purchase toy farm machinery and other materials to create an agriculture reading corner in Ziegler’s classroom.

It will be part of a new “Agriculture Center” in the classroom that will answer questions by pre-school students on how living things get food, what plants and animals need to grow, and what is the land like in their community.
